Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground lean chicken or ground lean turkey
  • 2 15 oz cans kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 15 oz cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 15 oz cans pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 3 10 oz cans Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 T cumin
  • 1/2 T oregano
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 lime, quartered

Instructions

If you are using a pressure cooker or Instant Pot:

  • Place the ground lean meat in your pressure cooker or Instant Pot. Use the Sauté or Brown function on your device to cook the meat.
  • Pour all of the other ingredients into the pressure cooker except the lime. Quarter your lime and squeeze the juice into the pot. Throw the rind away.
  • Select the Beans/Chili button or Meat/Stew button. Start your machine. Make sure the pressure valve is closed. It will cook for 20 - 35 minutes depending on the machine you use (mine is 20!). 
  • Release the pressure from your cooker and serve.

If you are using a slow cooker:

  • Cut up the onion.
  • Spray a cooking pan with fat free cooking spray, and sauté the onion for a few minutes.
  • Add the lean ground meat to the pan and cook until the meat is brown, about 5 - 7 minutes.
  • Pour the meat (with the juices) and the onions into the slow cooker.
  • Pour all of the other ingredients into the slow cooker except the lime. Quarter your lime and squeeze the juice into the pot. Throw the rind away. 
  • Cook your chili on high for 3 1/2 - 4 hours.
  • Serve hot, adding any garnishments you like (they may count for points!).
